I'm probably way too agitated to read this properly, but the W3C Web Advertising Business Group "Cross-Browser Anonymous Conversion Reporting" thing reads something like "we're replacing third party cookies with a machanism outside of the user's view that's also synched across devices"?

It's my first day working at the Gaming Restaurant. I mix up an order and serve a steak "rare" instead of "legendary". The guests call me slurs as punishment and my boss gives me a lecture about being a Fake Gamer Girl.

oh dear, even mastodon has those annoying fake sex bots.

STORY ABOUT A KID WHO LOVES STAGE MAGIC WHO ACCIDENTALLY SIGNED UP FOR A REAL MAGIC SCHOOL AND NOW HAS TO FAKE PROFICIENCY IN MYSTICAL ARTS VIA SLEIGHT OF HAND

Which brings me onto VPN blocking by big names, which no-one seems to be mentioning.

There's a theme of big name sites blocking VPN IP ranges.

We had Netflix et all. But now news sites, even government sites are blocking VPNs.

Which I suspect is solely to unmask users under the guise of "security"

Not to mention IP blocks on VPN's undermines security, privacy and anonymity on the web.

Which I can understand to a point, pif you've been under attack from that IP.

But damn IP blocks are annoying for normal users like me

I thought something funny was going on.

Suspicions confirmed: a considerable number of Mastodon instances are blocking some of my VPNs exit nodes.

Damn I miss forums. In fact I miss websites.

Back before everything got subsumed by FB/YT/Reddit etc.

Like I'm almost at the point of saying fuck it I'm rebuilding this thing from scratch, properly

I'm just getting to grips with just how poor the security model is on mastodon
